For a primer on the Richmond Restaurant Group, definitely check out the article from this past Sunday’s RTD, "Cooking up a dynasty". It gives a good synopsis of Chef Michelle Williams, Jared Golden, and the rest of the group responsible for a number of great restaurants and bars in the city — Europa, The Hard Shell, Lucky Buddha, Cha-Cha’s Cantina, The Hill Cafe, Michelle’s at Hanover Tavern, and (coming very soon) DeLux.
I have to say that I stopped by DeLux last Friday night to see how everything looked, and it is ready to roll! The place looks incredible, and must be on the verge of opening. It is a big change from the old Southern Comfort, and I think it will have a boom of an opening.
